See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Stone-built 15th century pub purchased by the local community following its closure in 2012. It has been attractively renovated throughout and has a very comfortable and cosy feel to it. The main bar features high-backed stools and Chesterfield leather sofas, with large log burners. The adjacent restaurant area has a curved quadrant window which affords views over the rear patio. There is an extensive menu. The pub was formerly owned by Hunt Edmunds Brewery of Banbury which succumbed to Bass, Mitchells and Butler in 1965 and brewing ceased in 1967. There remains an attractive Hunt Edmunds ceramic plaque by the main entrance, the sole remaining evidence of its previous ownership. There are two beers on offer, one is a national (usually the ubiquitous Doom Bar), and the other is a regional or local offering. This is a pub that survived thanks to the tireless efforts of the villagers to retain their local and what a good job they did!
